Stuffed Squash Blossoms

Last year we decided to try our hand at growing squash. I would give our effort a solid C+ but with our CSA this year, we decided not to repeat the experience (although there may still be time to change our mind!) A friend mentioned the other day that she has a bumper crop of squash and was looking for a way to use some of the blossoms. I found a couple of uses from my favorite Jamie Oliver book, Jamie at HomeEverything I have ever made was wonderful and this is no exception. You may remember the zucchini carbonara, YUM. We did make a slight change to Jamie’s recipe and used Mary’s beer batter. I am sure either would be great. The filling in this recipe is awesome. Since we didn’t have enough blossoms, we ended up using the rest of the filling as a spread. It was pretty stellar just like that and I still may try it in ravioli. Let us know what you think!

    • Last year we really grew squash in a pot just to get them! This year our CSA did have some, but they are hard to come by. Absolutely worth it if you can get your hands on them 🙂
